What is Floatation Therapy?
Floatation therapy is a luxurious escape from the constant stress of life’s daily pressures and a natural way to heal the body and mind. The concept is similar to the mineral salt baths at the Dead Sea in Israel. Eight hundred pounds of Epsom salt is dissolved into a shallow pool of skin temperature water to create this effect. Both lightproof and soundproof, this peaceful space frees you of gravity, noise, and other distractions. As if in deep meditation, your body and mind achieve calmness, entering into a theta brain wave state resulting in a profound state of relaxation. When combined with the zero-gravity environment, the floatation allows your body and mind to enter into a deep state of relaxation – not found anywhere else on earth.
Our Spa Suites provide you with your own private shower, dressing area, and Floatation Cabin. Our Cabins were custom designed for clients to be extremely user friendly. While the concept is exactly the same as that of a sensory deprivation chamber, there are different types of units all over the world ranging from spa-like, float rooms and tanks to pods or even a giant seashell.
In addition to these many benefits, your learning abilities are at their greatest and your powers of visualization and creativity are substantially enhanced during floatation therapy. It has been said that you can learn a language in half the time while floating. After just one session, we know you will agree.
At Peace Floatation & Massage offers you the opportunity of attaining the deepest state of relaxation found anywhere on earth.
